It's Tuesday...Know What That Means?

It is time for another Digital Tuesday Challenge, and what a fun challenge it is this week.
Our wonderful sponsor this week is Fairy Knoll. If you like fairies, this is one site you will want to check out. If you are not particularly fond of  fairies, you will want to check it out too, as there are plenty of other images as well.
The lucky winner will get to choose any 3 images! You can click on the link above and check them out. That way if you win, you will know exactly which ones you woud like!

The challenge is to make any kind of GIFT SET. How fun is that.

For this challenge I used the fun image called Aislan which can be found on this page at the Fairy Knoll store. I tend to make little girl gift sets when it comes to cute images such as these and this time is no exception.

This SU tin, that they sold in a 3 pack, was just the perfect size. After covering it with some glitter paper I have had for a while, I attached the colored image with demensionals. The gifts inside include a wall hanging and necklace.

To get the sparkle of glitter with a digital image, I used my embellishment glue stick and SU dazzling diamond. I then coated each of them with crystal effects. I actually let it dry overnight (yeah for me, LOL, I let it completely dry!)

I used the memory glass frames, 1 1/2"  for the necklace and the 2" for the wall hanging. To keep the necklace light, I did not use the glass (and so the little girl would not break it and get cut). The crystal effects made the image thick enough to insert in the frame with no need for the glass. For the wall hanging I did add the glass, just in the front, since the crystal effects made the image rather thick I kind of had to squish it in there. With the glass it will be easier to clean if needed.

I love that I could use some old organdy ribbon for this. Organdy ribbon is so pretty. I have not purchased much because I never know what color I will need. Usually I think of just buying all of the colors available, lol. Then the price shock reminds me of what a bad idea that is!

This challenge is such fun for the design team. We get to see such wonderful creations. I can hardly wait to see what your imagination will help you create. You can always check out the other challenge participant blogs to see what they made too. That is one of the fun parts of entering challenges for me.
